Icon News is interested in the humanitarian issues and causes that celebrities are involved in and Lew Marklin, the shows host is involved in issues ranging from childrens rights, to homelessness, worldwide poverty, animal rights, education and more for organizations such as One.org, Make a Wish Foundation, National Humane Society, RFB&D, Save Homeless Youth, Photo Charities, Habitat For Humanity, Muzart Foundation, EOTO (Each One Teach One) and now recently has become a board member for CME (Conscious Music Entertainment)
an organization committed to teaching children through music and holding the music industry accountable to the music that it gives to kids, by rating music. Of Eric Roberts, Marklin says, "I first met Eric through his work with CodePink. CODEPINK is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end U.S. funded wars and occupations, to challenge militarism globally. It is an amazing organization and Eric is an amazing human being. Ironically I lived down the hall from Eric and had no idea. We later, bumped into each other at the valet of our building in Beverly Hills. Neither of us, had any idea that we were neighbors. It's a very small world, which makes it within our reach to change it!"
Of the quote, Angela Holladay, line producer for Icon News says "It means a lot to get the endorsement of an Icon like Eric Roberts. He is an amazing actor and humanitarian who we see around Hollywood at so many events. He is a huge part of this town and everyone loves him. He helps so many people and he is just so down to earth and present. It is always exciting to be a part of anything that Eric is involved in."
